Cartoon characters get all the cool abilities. They can bounce back from AmusingInjuries, bounce off walls like rubber, and pull random stuff out of {{Hammerspace}}. Then there's this. Cartoon characters seem to carry alternate outfits in Hammerspace. But, they rarely have to reach into their hyperspace pouch to change clothes. They can run offscreen and return with an entirely different wardrobe on, they can spin in place to change clothes, or something can pass in front of them to reveal their changed outfits.

SisterTrope to ChangingClothesIsAFreeAction, which generally involves changing into a particular costume. Please put examples of super hero costume changes on that page. Hyperspace Wardrobe should contain examples of non-heroic costume changes. Compare ConvenientColorChange, where no clothes are changed, but their color does.



[[folder:{{Anime}} and {{Manga}}]]
* Erza of ''Manga/FairyTail'', whose magic revolves around HammerSpace as it is, seems to be above changing clothes like a normal person.
** She lampshades in the Welcome to Fairy Hills OVA
-->'''Erza''': "I forgot how difficult this was."
* Seems to be an ability of Dark Schneider from ''Manga/{{Bastard}}''.

* ''Film/TheMask'': The mask literally grants the wearer the powers of a cartoon character and features all three varieties.
* In ''Film/ErnestSavesChristmas'', Ernest has a bunch of costumes that were ready to be of use but came out of nowhere.
** ''Film/ErnestScaredStupid'' had this too; it was fairly regular in Ernest movies.
* ''Film/UndercoverBrother''. The title character somehow does a costume change while ''jumping through a window''. Watch it [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oj03IT2805Y here]].
* Maggie in ''Film/TheGreatRace.'' The only other way she could have that many outfits while running a globe-spanning auto race is if she has a wardrobe truck following her just offscreen.
* In ''Film/PeeWeesBigAdventure'', Pee-Wee apparently has the ability to insta-change both his own clothes and someone else's simply by saying, "I have a plan..."
* We see the sidekicks being taught how to do this in ''Film/SkyHigh2005''.
* In ''Film/ScottPilgrimVsTheWorld'', Scott walks into his bathroom, and comes out in a completely different outfit, all before the ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' LaughTrack is done playing.
* ''Film/TheBluesBrothers'' Band do a super-fast costume change for Music/CabCalloway to lead them in Minne the Moocher. They change back in the blink of a camera cut afterwards.

* In the opening credits of ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'', Sabrina would pose in front of a mirror and zap herself into different wardrobes. Of course, this is justified in that it's [[AWizardDidIt done with magic]].
* Both Superman in ''Series/LoisAndClark'' and Wonder Woman in ''Series/WonderWoman'' change clothes by spinning. In both cases (except for the pilot episode of ''Wonder Woman,'' where she emerges from the spin with her street clothes over her arm) the clothes they're wearing simply vanish.

* Featured in ''TabletopGame/{{Toon}}'', naturally. A character with the Quick Change/Disguise shtick can dress as practically anything in an instant.

* On a meta level; actors portraying multiple characters (such as in small productions) often need to completely change their clothes in under a minute, or shorter, depending on the show and who they are playing (although parts are usually cast to avoid complete costume changes in short amounts of time). See Real Life below for examples of people who take it even more seriously.

* Characters in ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'' can change clothes with a backflip.
* ''VideoGame/TheSims'' do the spin in place thing when they change clothes.
* The alchemist Zandria apparently has a spell for this in ''Kyrandia 2''. At the end of every area, her outfit either gets damaged or becomes environmentally incorrect, so she snaps her fingers to summon a new one. Towards the end of the game, she comments that she's running out of spare outfits in her wardrobe spell.
* In several games in ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'', the Iron Boots function this way: Link changes his shoes in an instant just by jumping and clicking his feet together.

* ''Webcomic/SkinHorse'': Tigerlily Jones appears to have this power.
* Jade, Kanaya, and Dirk from ''{{Webcomic/Homestuck}}'' use Wardrobifiers that remotely modify their clothes.
* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'': Nanase gained a spell that lets her do this.[[note]]Or rather, she can instantly swap one article of clothing she has on with another article that she knows the location of.[[/note]] She admits it's a pretty useless spell.
* Sarin of ''Webcomic/TheDragonDoctors'' keeps a lot of "emergency clothes" in warped space for assorted incidents, mostly transformation related.

* In ''WebVideo/DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog'', the doctor, in plain clothes, ducks down behind a stairway of some sort and comes back up wearing his costume.

* ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' is probably the TropeCodifier, if not the TropeMaker.
* The Music Meister from ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' could costume change via FlungClothing.
* Babs Bunny on ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' frequently does the spin-change.
